Rule 23 class action status denied to hurricane victims

As WSJ.com recently reported, District Judge Kurt Engelhardt denied class action status on December 29, 2008 to Hurricane Katrina & Rita victims in an action concerning those allegedly toxic trailers.  In a 50 page order, the judge concluded that the requirements for class certification under FRCP 23(a) and (b)(3) were not met.
